Born in the Namib Desert, Quinton spent most of his childhood in the African bush. He began his working career as a hunter and then later attained a degree in the natural sciences. Today, he is considered one of Southern Africa’s leading bushcraft specialists.
His passion for adventure has taken him from bitter sub-Antarctic regions to the scorching deserts of the Middle-East. He has summitted the highest ice-peak in Russia and has lived with ‘vanishing’ tribes in Africa, the frozen wastelands of Outer Mongolia and the sweltering jungles of the Amazon basin.
As a conservationist, he has managed the animal collection for one of the largest Zoological Gardens in Africa where he was committed to the breeding of endangered species around the world.
He is a frequent resource in print and on radio programs, speaking on a variety of nature topics. He is well known as a television presenter of popular wildlife programs such as “Aardwolf” and 50/50 “Veldfocus”.
He has also trained as a classical pianist.
Quinton’s business message has universal appeal – he has addressed audiences in more than 30 countries worldwide. His talks assist people to tap into their natural potential… to improve their business skills and performance… and to gain a better understanding of themselves and others.
